The PACE Connected Fueling network is extended by the gas stations of Raiffeisen Handels- und Vermittlungsgesellschaft mbH Eichenzell. The rollout was successfully completed and customers can now refuel at 17 RHV Raiffeisen service stations and pay with their smartphone directly at the fuel pump with Connected Fueling.

With RHV Raiffeisen, PACE gains another partner who is convinced of the simple mobile-payment process and the independent Connected Fueling Platform. The Connected Fueling platform already supports the integration with various POS system providers, including Ratio Elektronik GmbH, which are used by RHV. The integration of RHV service stations was therefore possible and quickly implemented without any further development effort.

Digitalization is constantly being driven forward at RHV and through the cooperation with PACE Telematics, RHV is laying the foundation for the digital future in the service station sector.

The customer can store various payment options in the app and all receipts are automatically saved in the app after each refueling. The inconvenience of collecting paper receipts is completely eliminated for the customer. RHV thus offers customers digital fuel management free of charge. Reinhard Kirchner, managing director RHV Raiffeisen: “Digitalization is constantly being driven forward at RHV and through the cooperation with PACE Telematics, RHV is laying the foundation for the digital future in the service station sector.”

More options for drivers

Connected Fueling offers drivers the opportunity to pay quickly and securely at the pump. Not only are various payment options available, such as credit card, PayPal, Apple Pay, and giropay, the open system also allows app providers to easily integrate it into their own app. In addition to the PACE Drive app, which–aside from payment–also allows users to search for gas stations and compare prices, DKV customers can also use the DKV APP&GO to pay digitally with the DKV Card. Both apps can be downloaded free of charge from the respective app stores.

Using Connected Fueling is quite simple: as soon as a customer drives up to a supported gas station, he or she is notified of the mobile payment option in the app and can call up the station’s available gas pumps. The customer then selects the pump on the display, fills up and pays conveniently via smartphone. The receipt is then displayed and saved directly on the customer’s device. Pre-authorization and activation of automatic fuel dispensers, as is the case at some RHV gas stations, is also already possible and implemented.
